dude it really does sound like the box is on it's way out.
you shouldn't run auto's low on oil at all, so maybe you've stuffed something.
did it stuff up the time u filled it up, if so, i would have to say the box is flogged.

just a silly thought, you are checking the oil when the engine is running???
another thing you could check is your kick down cable, but I don't think it would be that.
